Review:

This book is pitched to college and university faculty at all career stages, and it stands out from other books in this category because of its research-based findings and its thoughtful case studies.... This book’s strengths include the liberal use of longer case studies and shorter scenarios, each of which works through a series of questions and proposed resolutions (for case studies) and a challenge question and outcome (for scenarios).... These vignettes were well written and thoughtfully prepared, and on the whole they engage the reader quite effectively. That the scenarios are so clearly taken from actual experience makes them more valuable, especially to newer faculty members who haven’t yet seen it all.... Above all, this book uses the very techniques it suggests for effective teaching, and new faculty members in particular will find themselves better prepared for everyday faculty life after thinking through these realistic case studies. (Reflective Teaching)

Buller and Cipriano have written a book that is a must read for faculty members at all stages of their careers. Senior professors will find helpful reminders of how one might mentor junior faculty and junior faculty in particular will be grateful for this smart, concise and wise guide to navigating an academic career, including how to be an effective teacher, to work well with colleagues, and to prepare for tenure. Highly recommended. (Pamela Scully, Assistant Vice Provost for Academic Innovation, Director of the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence, Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and African Studies)

A must for any faculty member’s bookshelf, Buller and Cipriano have combined their years of experience into a ‘go-to’ resource that is relevant, thought-provoking, and filled with real-world examples that will help professors of all ranks navigate the changing landscape of higher education. From the student fresh out of graduate school to the scholar who has been around the classroom block more than they can count, this is the one book they should have, and the first one they should grab. (Richard L. Riccardi, ScD,Associate Vice President for Institutional Effectiveness, Southern Connecticut State University)

A cogent, accessible, and engaging text that hits all the important topics that faculty need to think about and act on from day one. Carefully constructed scenarios and accompanying questions help faculty think through appropriate responses to common, challenging problems, making this an ideal text for faculty development, faculty learning communities, and mentoring programs. (Laura Lohman, associate professor and director, Faculty Development Center, California State University, Fullerton)

Buller and Cipriano’s A Toolkit for College Professors is an invaluable resource for faculty interested in improving their teaching and their students learning. It is also a guide for a successful and rewarding career. (Steven G. Jones, Associate Professor of Political Science and Director, Center for Faculty Development Georgia College and State University)
